While scanning is an essential option for creating accessible books, using publisher source files are proving to be a far better option. This presentation will explore the national initiatives in K-12 and in higher education. The goal is to create the darn book once and distribute it nationally. We will also provide up-to-the-minute information about legal issues surrounding international distribution.
